A pair of black and white Brooklyn street signs in East Flatbush. These were standard issue between 1964 and about 1984.

Now, let’s hope that the DOT doesn’t take this down after seeing this.
They have already.
When were these taken down?
A few years ago
I always liked the color-coded signs. You knew which boro you were in just by looking at the signs. This was especially useful when traveling between Brooklyn and Queens. Once the white on black signs changed to blue on white, you had left Brooklyn and entered Queens.
Ya shoulda put a Where am I? tag on on this picture.
I just noticed a little after seeing this picture, on the Queens/ Brooklyn border there are 2 signs for Highland Blvd & Vermont Pl on the street light pole by the park that have the queens color scheme to them that are in decent shape.
They were obviously well made. Clear, unfaded. What’s the deal with some of these street signs that I would guess due to sunlight, have faded to near nothing? I came upon one along Parsons Blvd. yesterday.
All together now….. ebony and iiiiiiiiiivory…..
i miss those days
